            On January 18th, SCJH had their very own talent show consisting of pianists, singers, dancers, and more. The show opened with Tyler Thompson who played the “Super Mario Theme Song” on the piano. Emma Fuegel followed soon after, singing “Heathens” by Twenty Øne Piløts. This excellent solo was followed by Gershyia Inman, dancing along with the song, "Pretty Girls" by Iggy Azalea and Britney Spears. Stephanie Escobar and Katie Gowin entered next. Stephanie played the ukulele while Katie sang to “Oh Ms. Believer” by Twenty Øne Piløts. Sydney Rigaud entertained us with a delightful tap dance to the song, “Good Morning,” Griffin Burns stole the show by performing a medley on the piano that he composed. Lacey Lobdell danced along to, “Better When I’m Dancing” by Meghan Trainor and followed by Fiona Kessler who sweetly sang “A Team” by Ed Sheeran. The last contestant to perform was Rachel Porter, singing “Stitches” by Shawn Mendes.

         The proud winners of the Talent Show were Griffin Burns, Lacey Lobdell, and Sydney Rigaud. Griffin took first place for his amazing piano piece. The second and third place went to Lacey and Sydney respectively for wowing the audience with their dance routines. Each and every contestant showed great talent, the decision was tough, but the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners simply blew the judges away! 



Dear SCJH Families,

As the new Principal of Sebastian Charter Junior High School, I want to formally welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year! I am eagerly anticipating a successful and rewarding year, and I look forward to working with our dedicated parents, students, staff and the community to provide an exceptional educational experience for all SCJH families.

Nearly 20 years ago, SCJH was established by a group of parents just like you. They desired a small-school environment for their children that was both family-oriented and community-based, while also emphasizing their student’s academic growth and character development. While the school has undergone many changes, such as a beautiful new building with Chromebook carts, SmartBoards, and audio enhancement systems in every classroom, we still share and stress the same values and core beliefs today. As Principal, I personally know each and every student in the school, and speaking for the entire staff here at SCJH, we are concerned with the whole well-being of your child, not just their standardized test scores.

In conclusion, I wish you all a wonderful school year. If I can be of any assistance, do not hesitate to contact me at anytime and please know that my door is always open. I can be reached at mnolan@scjh.org or via phone at 772-388-8838. I am honored to serve as YOUR Principal.

Principal Marvel Nolan

COngratulations to ms.forbes, our 2016-2017 teacher of the year!
